    Default Hello to all who read!

    Hey everybody! I am a new member of this community, seeking aid in the realms of map making. It is something I have considered doing for a while, just because I love to create worlds in my mind, but have a very hard time visualizing it, and putting it onto paper. I hope that this site may help me get past this, and I can't wait to get started!

    Welcome to the Guild Tyler, you have come to the right place. Check out the tutorials sections, you will find a host of walk-throgh's there to help you get started.

    Cheers,

    Welcome !! Creating the world or town or building etc etc in your mind is the hard part. The rest is just technique and you can definitely learn that here.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    All the better Thanks you two. I think I'll get started with the mapping. Is there a place to put throw-aways up to be critiqued?

    We do not have "throw-aways" here at the Guild....just maps that are not finished...yet

    We DO have a place for those unfinished maps though...It is called the WIP forums, as in Works In Progress. Here you can put up any map that you make, no matter its state of incompletion, for some helpful comments and critiques. We are a friendly and helpful group, so don't be shy about asking for any help.

    Have fun and enjoy the new hobby

    Please take my critiques as someone who Wishes he had the Talent

    Alright, very cool I'm excited to be a part of this. May be a while until I start posting maps, due to the large mixture of 'projects' I'm trying to pursue. And when I do, don't be shy in your critiques either. I want to hear the whole thing. You can't improve if you don't know that something needs to be in the first place! And that is the plan!
